Of Quotas and Yosi.

Posted more pics in my Multiply account. Take a lookie-lookie.

Ack. I'm sooo full right now since Kerry and Grace had 2 Yellow Cab pizzas delivered to the office as 'pakain,' NY's Finest and Four Seasons. Both 18 inches. Yikes. Sarap.

Anyway, I know I haven't updated for the longest time but I've been limiting my time on the world wide web for the past couple of days. First off, the remote connection I use to browse slows down my PC so I don't browse anymore (Naks! Oi, it's true. I swear). Second, I have been given more quota for evaluations: 18 a day!!! During the first few days of committing to the quota, I wouldn't take my hour-long lunch break but I'd just take yosi breaks in-between 3 or 4 calls A sandwich or bread from Starbucks would suffice, eaten in my workstation.

And am now in the 12mn to 9am shift. The security guard shift as we call it. Not much of an adjustment, really. When I was in Sykes as part of the MSN 9 Beta team, 12mn to 9am din ang shift. The difference is that I work alone in the QA stations on the 14th floor. Again...alone. Kerry and Fats are on the same shift but they do S.O. in the 16th floor batcave. I try to go to work earlier, around 2 hours before my shift, so I can still get together with Melo and the others.

Hey, I'm not complaining. Really, am not. Being chosen as the sole Inbound QA was a surprise for me. I was flattered really because Kit and Cel were entrusting me 21 Inbound agents and letting me handle client calibrations with Greg and the IB TLs. And believe me, it is a challenge. And I'm up for it. I welcomed the added heavy responsibility with open arms, lighter held in my left hand and a pack of West Ice in my right

I've also been spending my yosi breaks with old officemates from Sykes who are on the night shift, my India batchmates and Beta mates. The first time we all met, they said they were all talking about my sign-in name in MSN Messenger sa floor, parang papatay daw ako ng tao! Mwahahha! Tawa daw sila ng tawa. Sabi pa ni Dheng wag daw ako pakita kay Jepoy and Sherwin at asar-talo ako dun sa dalawa. I saw Sonny, and the first thing he said was 'Hanep sa sign-in name ah! Bwahahaha!' Leche. Hehe.

Oh well. Slowly picking up the pieces of my heart. And again trying my damn best to be happy. Friends have been egging me to date again. But I think I'm getting tired of the game. I've turned down 2 invites already. Ewan. I know that I can be happy without a man in my life. I've been there, done that.

Oh shit. Did I just type that? Haha.

I'm still looking for a male pug. I've decided to push through with my plans of getting one, or, if all else fails (read as my Kuya says NO because of my neffies and niece), another cat, a Persian one.

I'm thinking: I have so much love to give and maybe, as of now, it's better to give my love to those sweet animals than waste my time hurting over and pining for someone so unworthy.

Oh. Excuse me while I bang my head against the wall again

As I texted to online twin Patty: 2 heartaches within 3 months is all that my heart can handle. I'm giving it a rest. It was all too much.

Men: Can't live without them. Can't kill them.
